stay on the offensive until the next two weeks until the next debate he has with president obama. they really need to -- enough patting themselves on the back. it's new now. i said to someone this morning in the romney campaign, they called up and said thanks for your praise. i said you guys did great, you get to enjoy this morning. go back on the offensive, continue to make your case, the key is to stay on the offensive, not let what happened in denver stay in denver but use it as an inflection point for the rest of the campaign. jenna: you're a tough critic. you say all right. here is what you need -- >> to their credit they are giving a foreign policy speech monday at the virginia military institute. i has to layout his policy-heavy forward looking agenda. maybe he should give another speech on taxes, debt, on obamacare and keep up on the offensive on policy, i think that is the key. jenna: substance is something we've talked about talked a lot about. you mentioned the media being critical of the romney campaign. you at times have been critical of the romney campaign, maybe a

goodman. with less than five weeks before the general election, president obama and republican presidential nominee mitt romney squared off in their first presidential debate wednesday in denver, colorado. for 90 minutes, the candidates faced off over taxes, unemployment, economic regulations, social security, health care, education, partisan gridlock and other domestic issues. romney repeatedly attacked obama's record, often putting the president on the defensive. many supporters of obama have expressed surprise that he never mentioned several of romney's potential weak spots, including his record as the private equity firm bain capital. also his vast personal wealth and offshore investments, and his recent remark that 47% of americans are government dependents. some domestic issues went virtually unmentioned wednesday night, including immigration policy, global warming, gun control, incarceration rates, and poverty. some key voices were shut out the conversation, including those of third-party presidential candidates. as obama and romney were facing off at the university of d
speech in virginia today after spending the weekend drawing huge crowds in florida, and president obama is in california where last night he poked fun at his lack luster debate performance last week. he gave a nod to the performance at a star-studded event included stevie wonder and katy perry. >> they perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. >> the president is expected to raise more than $9 million during his two-day swing through california. >> and mitt romney has a big day. expected to elaborate a little more on his foreign policy, and he will speak to fill in more details as to that plan that he laid out a couple weeks ago, but that's going to happen around 11:00 eastern. >> and only 29 days left to go. but you have to wonder, too, with the 67 million people watching that debate, the race has gotten fighter and it's a fight to the finish. two weeks ago it was looking bad and bleak for romney and it is amazing how the wind has changed and romney has the wind at his back, and obama is scraping to get back into this thing, and the numbers since wednesday nigh
because of things that happened at companies he ran? isn't it telling that president obama didn't make much of this 47% gaffe a week ago. >> sir, why didn't the president bring up any of those things? were you watching this wondering that yourself? >> of course. i was watching it and some of the comments that i hear today make me think people were looking for entertainment instead of substance and facts. i was looking for substance and facts. i saw a president who was very calm, cool and collected. he was looking out for the interest of seniors here in the country as it related to medicare and he was somebody concerned, in my opinion, about the middle class about doing what's right in terms of going forward in terms of diversifying our resources. i know people say this morning that maybe romney was attacking and energetic and all of that sort of thing, but what i saw in the president was somebody who knew his facts, kept his cool, presented himself in a presidential way and i thought did a fine job. we have to realize there's two more of these debates to go. and i don't know that the p
, and i think he's going to have to do better in the next debates. the thing we know about barack obama from every report, he's one of the most competitive people around, so i bet you the week after the next debate, we will not be having a conversation about how poorly he did but a conversation about how great he did. the bigger issue here, the republicans are going to have a tough chance because they don't really have an opportunity to spend more money on fields. you can't just dump enough money on the ground in the last month to try to turn on a field operation. that's something you have to build over weeks and months coming up to an election and there's no evidence that i have seen anywhere, i was down in tampa last weekend dealing with a lot of the obama troops, and there's no ground i have seen where republicans have really focused on the field operation. >> guys, great of you to come in on friday. have a great weekend. >>>making news, janet napolitano is on her way to arizona after the death of nicholas ivy. that's the border agent who was killed on tuesday. his funeral is set for
missed opportunity i think both side. president obama did not go after milt romney on that 47% comment. that has been dominating the debate conversation the last couple weeks. didn't go aggressively on it. some people, democrats will say he should have done that. mitt romney said the middle-class has gotten crushed by the obama administration, but dent say just like joe biden said yesterday, would have been a great opportunity to say look even your own vice president admit it. >> two more chances left to go. plus the vp debate. thank you to karen travers, reporting live from denver. thank you again, karen. coverage of last night's debate is far from over. later this half-hour some of your political observations. posted on our facebook fan page. keep it heren abc. all morning long. >>> tomorrow we'll get the latest gauge on unemployment nationwide from the labor department and it does not look encouraging. september's jobless rate is predicted to j up slight low to 8.2% when the federal report is released up .1% from august. a private survey showed american businesses made 162,000 hires
and they wanted. right now, the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next week. likewise, a study by mckenzie and company said 30% are anticipating dropping them from coverage. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this. and the republicans had a plan. they put a plan, a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. we have to have a president that can reach across the aisle and fashion legislation with input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done with a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea, in fact, a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said, what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate. but t
that republicans have been pining for for weeks and you have barack obama certainly not at his best. if you view that in to toll talty the disparity between the two is big. you see on twitter, from reporters, seeing it on e-mail. people saying it was a pretty darn good night for mitt romney. >> it was a collective and calmer smooter romneyen than we see on the trail. i have been traveling with the campaign when he gets interacts with reporters. he's more rigid and today was the mitt romney that is friends that his closest associates tell us they see. the guy who is calmer, who can make a joke in the beginning, who can deliver a line and who can talk about these issues with clarity and not someone rambling, you know, parts you see him give on the stop. >> are we wrong in assessing watching the debate that romney had a strong performance. >> it's more than that. mitt romney had the night of his life. there's a level playing field in the race. i'm getting e-mails from around the country top "politico" people saying this is a new race. democrats very quiet tonight. republicans gleeful. the best e-ma
conservative writer earlier this week essentially say the only reason, the only excuse possible as to why barack obama could be ahead in the polls is because he's black. i mean, this -- you also had john sununu several months ago say he doesn't understand what it is to be an american, which he tried to backtrack on that again. again andrea mitchell tried to give him a chance to save himself. time and again we have heard these kinds of attacks that, you know what? john sununu should just keep saying it. every time they say it, a further galvanizes our side. if that's what you really think of the president, go ahead and keep saying it because it only helps us. >> karen, finney, professor james piterson, thank you for joining us. next. was mr. romney's performance last night really what women want? stay with us. >> but the right answer is not to have the federal government take over health care and start mandating to the providers across america telling a patient and a doctor what kind of treatment they can have. >> jerry, just remember, it's not a lie if you believe it. >>> absent from last
